On December 31, as the clock struck midnight in Dubai, the UAE city was transformed into a magical fireworks display – with architectural icons the Burj Khalifa, The Palm Jumeirah and more ringing in 2015 with a bang

To celebrate the arrival of 2015 the Burj Khalifa was host to a spectacular fireworks and light display – with Arabic calligraphy beamed onto the world's tallest tower, and an impressive fireworks series sparking out of the mammoth UAE icon. A giant clock was also illuminated onto the side of the building, as thousands of people crowded around the Downtown Dubai masterpiece to count down to the New Year.

Elsewhere in the city, in the Marina area, Dubai's Burj Al Arab was also host to an incredible fireworks display, as was the Meydan Racecourse, where Pharrell Williams headlined a NYE extravaganza.

Take a closer look at the Burj Khalifa New Year's Eve highlights, which were live streamed on YouTube last night, below now:
